, between president obama and john boehner. john bain certificate sort of sitting this one out. it's now harry reid, the senate majority leader, the democrat, and mitch mcconnell, the senate minority leader, the republican and joe biden has been brought in as the guy that you call if things are breaking down right now. so it's, there's an impasse, they're stuck. but something might still be happening. >> he's the master of the senate. he was there for 30-plus years, he knows how to cut a deal. and we heard senator mcconnell say on the floor of the senate, he's looking for a dance partner. i guess he thought senator reid wasn't it so now he's saying i'll try over here with vice president biden. i don't think that he's going get any further with vice president biden on this issue of cpi for example. the white house will not be any more open to that than senator reid was. but if there is a way to get another route forward or if they're all just looking for an angle, maybe they can find another path this afternoon. who knows. >> thank you, jessica you're kind enough not to correct me. dy cal

elected officials are wasting time while the clock ticks. house speaker john boehner announced his plan b to let bush-era tax cuts expire for earners making more than $1 million a year and he wants to set automatic spending cuts with unspecified cuts elsewhere. the speaker pulled his so-called plan b for lack of support from his own party because many republicans still beholden to grover nor quest and the ridiculous pledge want no compromise at all. the debate between the two sides centers around a balanced approach the budget. republicans say president obama wants too much revenue. that's taxes in normal speak and not enough cuts. >> at some point we're going to have to address the spending problem that we have. we can't cut our way to prosperity. we need economic growth. many believe the fundamental reform of our tax code will help us get our economy moving faster and put more americans back to work. and more americans on the tax rolls. how we get there, god only knows. >> president obama doesn't see it that way. >> at some point there's got to be i think a recognition on the par

gave coverage to republicans to be able to go with john boehner's suggestion. there's severe dysfunction in washington, particular dysfunction in the republican house congress at the moment. but that's another issue we'll discuss. let me bring annie lowry into this discussion. senior economic policy reporter at "the new york times." the debt ceiling, the fiscal cliff. we keep trying to solve storms of our own making. nothing being discussed this weekend as steven just made clear. any closer to solving our long-term issues? what we are in at the moment, the reason you are on tv with me right now is this is crisis management that washington is in right now. it doesn't make any sense. >> yeah. it doesn't. and i think that if you look even a month or two ago, folks were talking about starting a tax reform, clean up the code, freeing up money to invest in things like education. nobody's talking about that anymore. you know, right now they're really struggling to figure out what to do with the tax cuts. and, you know, they're not even talking about the sequester very much anymore,
